Shattered Globe Theatre (SGT) has announced a revival of Chicago writer Joel Drake Johnson's Rasheeda Speaking, directed by SGT Associate Artistic Director AmBer D. Montgomery.
This comedy-turned-social thriller about workplace racism will play Feb. 25-April 9, 2022, at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave.
Rasheeda Speaking will feature ensemble members Daria Harper, Deanna Reed-Foste and Drew Schad, with Barbara Roeder Harris.
Whether it's the doctor's inability to remember her name, or the toxic fumes radiating from the Xerox machine and lab next door, Dr. Williams' office is not made for Jaclyn. As the only Black woman in the office, Jaclyn is determined to keep her job. But when Dr. Williams promotes her White co-worker, Ileen, and asks her to spy on their only Black co-worker, Jaclyn has her work cut out for her. Fueled by a fear of difference and looming racial uprising, how far will Jaclyn, Ileen and Dr. Williams go?
